By using the flows past planar and conical shocks near the axisymmetric cones at zero incidence the characteristics of the waveriders are investigated, whose lower surface is described by a power-law function. A parametric analysis of the effect of the cross section shape on the lift-to-drag ratio has been carried out for the on-design flow regimes, and also the data have been obtained on the integral heat fluxes for a given surface temperature T w = const. The results of comparison are presented for different constraints for the geometric parameters of waverider configurations, which are optimal in the lift-to drag ratio sense for the considered types of the basic flow.
